Road pavements, Civil Engineering

Road Pavements:

Pavements constitute an important part of road as they withstand the traffic loads and transmit them to the earthen embankment. A study of the types of pavements, the layers that constitute them and the construction practices is important.

Objectives

After studying this unit, you should be able to

  • understand the functions and desirable characteristics of road pavements, the types of pavements,
  • know the layers that constitute the pavements, and
  • discuss the construction practices involved in building pavements.
